“Art in Silico” is now accepting submissions for our juried art show through March 23!
The inaugural “Art in Silico” is a computational art exhibition and event series that examines the expressive world of creative computation and the confluence of technology and art, connecting circuit board to canvas. As technology pervades our existence, forming new universes — metaverses — in which we can live, act and perceive, the spaces between the conventional science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and the creative arts have shrunk to the infinitesimal. “Art in Silico” celebrates the continuum of arts and STEM, seeking to hack your mind and STEAM your brain to experience a world in which data are compelling, evocative, provocative, ugly, beautiful and appealing.
Pieces chosen for the exhibition will be required to be installed in their indicated location by March 27. Installations will be on display at Michigan Tech prior to the “Art in Silico” awards reception, which will be held at 5th & Elm at the Orpheum Theater on April 13. $1,500 in prizes will be awarded in multiple categories.
